Flirt by Hal Hartley( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 136 libraries worldwide
Flirt is a simple story of love and loss told three times in three different cities. The first story is set in New York. The subsequent two - set in Berlin and Tokyo - seemingly use the same situations and dialogue, but by subtle shifts of emphasis the film evolves from the turbulence of America to the benign calm of Japan. The crisis in each story is precipitated by the indecisiveness of the main character; his or her need for reassurance that their love will hold steadfast - that there is a future for their love - leads them to flirt with disaster. This volume also contains an extended prose piece in which Hal Hartley discusses his work

"Simple Men tells the story of two brothers, Bill and Dennis McCabe. Dennis is a quietly handsome, inexperienced, bookish student, while his older brother is a rough-hewn ladies' man who verges on misogyny. Thrown together to search for their long-lost father, the pair crash into confrontations with their expectations of themselves and their attitudes towards women." ... "Trust is a droll analysis of family violence and the moral courage it takes to defeat it and assume faith in others."--Back cover

True fiction pictures and possible films by Hal Hartley( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Hal Hartley's comedies and explorations of mismatched love and misplaced trust have been provocative must-sees for the past two decades with critics and audiences alike. Given the range and depth of his interests, along with the decidedly rigorous pursuit of a deeply felt aesthetic, his films are as difficult to classify as they are easy to recognize - and they have been widely recognized as a singular achievement in American filmmaking. In this book of interviews conducted by professor and film writer Kenneth C. Kaleta, Hartley reflects on the evolution of his filmmaking, elaborating on the forces that help shape it and the ways in which his aspirations develop as time goes on - revealing a good deal of what it is to be an independent creative artist in a relentlessly commercial culture. Exquisitely designed, with numerous full-color photographs and a complete illustrated filmography, True Fiction Pictures and Possible Films is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Hartley's filmmaking in particular, and motion pictures in general."--Jacket
